kind of self-explanatory, right? We seem to have some impressive thread-wrappers that lurk around this board. let's try to keep your "first booger" posts at a minimum.

Tim Wade of North Fork Anglers in Cody, WY, developed this nymph for the (what else) North Fork Shoshone River. A great dry fly stream but when the cutts and cuttbows aren't looking up, this is a real good bug; don't know if it's a stonefly nymph or general attractor, but it generally attracts fish in a river with stoneflies so maybe it's both (or neither). Love the crazy wing case stubs.



hook - Dai Riki 135 #10
underbody/weight - lead free wire .025
thread - UTC 140 black
tail - goose biots natural grey
body - rabbit dubbing black
rib - Ultrawire med red
wing cases - biots black
wings(?)/legs(?) - goose biots natural grey
bead - silver 5/32



mash barb, slide bead on shank

Image



wrap lead-free on shank and jam inside bead (locks bead in place, adds a bit more weight and builds up thorax)

Image



attach thread, smooth over lead-free, tie down wire, wrap back to hook bend; add a few more wraps at the back to create a little thread bump (helps splay tail)

Image



pull 2 biots and even tips

Image



tie in biots, abdomen length (actually looking back these may be a touch long) with wraps against thread bump and they should spread out

Image



trim biots and smooth underbody with thread

Image



apply some dubbing to thread

Image



apply some dubbing to body; try to make it a little thicker further along

Image



wrap wire forward, tie off, helicopter end and smooth over

Image




tie in turkey biot for 1st wing case at 60% mark

Image



add a bit more dubbing

Image



2nd biot

Image



more dubbing

Image



3rd biot

Image



add biot for near wing/leg/whatever (let it extend to base of tail)

Image



far wing/leg/whatever

Image



a bit more dubbing, tie off and SHHAN

Image



trim the biots and you're done

Fry the bacon first. Chop it up. Add it to the pancake batter. Cook cakes in skillet. Try to not be so hungover that it takes you an hour to eat one.

Those North Fork specials hammer fish. Truth.
